Fledgling Blogger

I’m very much the fledgling blogger, really just finding my feet at the moment. For a long time I had wanted to start a blog but didn’t really know how to begin. Then I came across Lilly Higgins’ blog and it really inspired me to write and so it began. I don’t post as often as I’d like to, I’m a mum of two and basically have a hectic schedule. This week was a bit crazy as an ongoing back problem reached it’s peak and I’ve had to get it treated so I’m at that phase of feeling worse before I get better. So sitting in front of a computer this week just wasn’t on the cards.

So when I checked my mail today, much to my delight and surprise I noticed that I had been nominated by A Hint of Garlic for the Liebster Blog Award! Thanks a mil guys! This was the perfect end to an otherwise trying week. I’m so chuffed :O)

The Liebster Blog Award is given to recognize your favorite up-and-coming bloggers who have fewer than 200 subscribers, and that you feel deserve more. It’s a cool way to meet more folks and learn some new things…and generally expand your horizons, in my opinion.

Rules are:

  1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
  2. Reveal your top 5 bloggers and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
  3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
And my top five are:
Richard Speedie: The passion that Richard shows for food and cooking is intoxicating. This is demonstrated through his blog and recently on Master Chef Ireland, where Richard was one of the contestants! Well done Richard.

Just a Smidgen: This is such an amazing blog! The photography alone is enough to draw anyone to this blog. It is also choc full of recipes, cookbooks, books etc. Really, check it out. 

Frugal Feeding: This is a must see blog. To quote, ‘good food shouldn’t cost the earth’. A man after my own heart. The photographs make your mouth water. What more can I say. :O)

 Bits and Breadcrumbs: A blog I recently came across, I love the sentiment between seasons, food and occasion.  Check out the Holy Mole, It’s Chili recipe! 

Caroline’s Feeds: I love nothing more than gorging on my favourite treats however, being a mum of two boys my focus is teaching them the importance of healthy eating. Caroline manages to capture this with all my favourite foods, another must see blog! :O)

  1. Thanks so much! You’re very very kind. Did you know that they’re supposed to be scrapping the ‘may contain traces of nuts’ label next year – they will be required to be more precise about labelling.

The sun has finally come out so Im going to style and shoot my next post then Ill link and comment and like and follow 🙂 Are you on Twitter btw??

      Really, re Luncinda O’Sullivan. I really loved your blog, the photography is excellent and I think if a foodie picture makes you want to eat the food there and then, you’ve succeeded! I’m not on Twitter yet, it’s my next port of call. I’ve some ground to make up in the coming week in relation to posts. I look forward to seeing what your next post will be. R :O)
